Myobrace® System - Orthodontic Care for Young Children
The Myobrace System™ is a no-braces approach to straightening your teeth and jaws.
The Myobrace System corrects orthodontic problems without the need for braces. The Myobrace appliances have the proven dual function of correcting the oral habits that cause poor dental development while also providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position. These appliances are designed to be used in-sequence to effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrain the oral musculature, and exert light forces to align the teeth.
Myobrace treatment does not involve wearing braces or using complex and uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Wearing a Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of "myofunctional exercises" each day is all that is required in the treatment process.
The Myobrace System differs from other orthodontic forms of treatment as it is not only aimed at straightening the teeth, but is primarily directed at correcting the causes of crooked teeth and underdeveloped jaws. This works best for patients who are still growing, around the ages of six to ten. Effective treatment can be done outside of these ages, but habits become harder to correct in older patients. In a small number of cases, fixed braces may be required for a short time to provide optimal alignment.
